I like that you can prepare it once and can be preserved and stored in a jar for several months.

You can serve them in many ways. We like to enjoy them as a sandwich filling, or on a salad, and sometimes with some veggies such as roasted asparagus.

It is also convenient because it can be made with leftover eggs such as from Easter. If you run out of options of what to do with them, this is the perfect recipe to utilize some! Simply follow this recipe, and they will be preserved in vinegar for months to come!

Pickled Eggs Recipe Tips

  • We like using BPA free jar for storing them.
  • To make it easy to peel the eggs, you can mix a teaspoon of vinegar with the water you are boiling the eggs in.
  • Another way for easy peeling is once they are boiled, place them immediately under iced or cold water for a few minutes. This way, they will peel off very easily.
  • To preserve them better, ensure to keep them refrigerated at all times. This way you will have a delicious snack whenever you crave it for several months.
  • Also, do not leave them out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

I want to make something that I can seal in a regular canning process. Something that will have a long storage life. Can I use these recipes in a 15 minute water bath and leave them on the shelve for a long time?

This will not stay for too long, better to be consumed within a few weeks.
